Wander Wisconsin

Madison, Dane County
 See Camp Location
Head outdoors, swim in lakes and rivers, dig in the sand, go fishing, cook over a fire, set up tents and sleep under the stars. It's an invitation to unplug, to talk instead of text, to slow down, to be your self, to live and play with a small community of friends, and to know nature beyond just knowing about it. Unique adventures and camping experiences for youth ages 8-10 and 11-13. Choose from day trips close to home or overnight camping throughout Wisconsin. Small coed groups of twelve campers and two trip leaders travel together. Groups set up a base camp at a state park and visit area attractions throughout the week. Trips for younger campers designed as an introduction to overnight camping, and include a fun and busy schedule of activities. Trips for older campers provide a higher level of challenge and adventure. Wilderness trips, including canoeing, kayaking, backpacking, biking and more, involve travel to different wilderness camp sites throughout the week. Visit our web site and find the trip that meets your interests and needs.
